At workshops held in collaboration between the local actors UnCut and the Royal Institute of Art, young filmmakers learnt to work with video mapping as they explore the various narrative possibilities and story layers.
The pilot study involved activating the neighborhood on several levels. A permanent large-scale work was displayed on a building facade in Hagalund. In daylight, the work functions as a stenciled painting with its own aesthetic force. In the evening when darkness falls, a video projection kicks in. Video mapping animates the stenciled painting and the work undergoes a metamorphosis.
The Hagalund industrial park is a priority neighborhood for development, and Solna municipality and the building proprietors of Humlegården are working intensively to establish activities conducive to a favorable development of the area. The work is displayed on the rear facade of Gelbgjutarevägen 7 in Hagalund.
The pilot study addresses how a former industrial park can be enlivened through the embodiment of local creativity in contemporary artistic expression. This includes designing a context whereby young people can create, discover, challenge and influence. In visualizing new sides of one’s own back yard, discussions open up regarding future prospects and opportunities.
